Make a difference today

A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he

packed his suitcase with a bag of potato chips and a six-pack of root beer (iron brew

in SA context) and started his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman. She was sitting in the

park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down next to her and opened his

suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old

lady looked hungry, so he offered her some chips. She gratefully accepted it and

smiled at him.

Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again, so he offered her a root

beer. Again, she smiled at him. The boy was delighted! They sat there all afternoon

eating and smiling, but they never said a word.

As twilight approached, the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave; but

before he had gone more than a few steps, he turned around, ran back to the old

woman, and gave her a hug. She gave him her biggest smile ever.

When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later, his mother was

surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked him, “What did you do today that

made you so happy?” He replied, “I had lunch with God.” But before his mother could

respond, he added, “You know what? She’s got the most beautiful smile I’ve ever

seen!”

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her home. Her son was

stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked, “Mother, what did you do today

that made you so happy?” She replied! “I ate potato chips in the park with God.”

However, before her son responded, she added, “You know, he’s much younger than I

expected.”

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening

ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the

potential to turn a life around. People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a

lifetime! Embrace all equally!

Have lunch with God ……. bring chips.

Send this to people who have touched your life in a special way.

Let them know how important they are.

You may be going through a tough time right now but God is getting ready to bless

you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.

 

I don’t know where this origniated but I’d like to thank the author for the lovely idea that something like this could happen out there on a warm sunny day.Share this with a friend who needs to smile. I received this from a friend who made me smile. Pass the smile and bag of chips along …
